Americans seem to be embracing cider as an alternative to beer and wine. This is especially good news for Boston Beer makers of Angry Orchard Cider. In just three years since it was launched, Angry Orchard has half the cider market selling eight million cases in 2013. Cider isn’t just a winter beverage anymore. Boston Beer, MillerCoors and Anheuser-Busch all have year-round portfolios and you’ll be seeing cider at summer barbecues and on the beach.
